They are both gray odd trousers and serve similar functions. Flannels are good for fall/winter, but I wouldn't wear them in the spring. The nice thing about flannel is that it has a contrasting texture with a plain navy blazer. Gabardine, not so much, but those pants will still be fine with odd jackets.

Please comment on my Chinos.  Ignore the fit of the shirt, all the better fitting shirts are in the wash.  

 

I always have trouble with proper fitting pants in the waist and inseam.  I feel as though the leg opening is ok on these but not sure if I need to modify the hem or waist.

I have two pairs of trousers I really like and one of them is a staple color. However, both pairs are pleated (double pleats).


I'm 5'10 and weigh about 160 so I'm pretty slim. I've read that pleats often look best on slightly heavier gents. One of the pants is a staple grey and I don't have a FF pair in the same color so I'm hoping to make them work. I was wondering if anyone has any tips on having pleated pants fit correctly.

I think I might have to bring in the waist a bit on both pairs, but I'm not averse to doing that if they'll look good once that's done.

They just need not to billow, to ensure no one thinks they have reached 88 mph, and arrived in 1985.

@EEWithoutStyle how tall are you? About 5'10"?

Your chinos fit fine but are too narrow in the leg opening and too shortly hemmed for my tastes.

So I bring the question to this thread and would appreciate a dissection of the look.


Unless I am dead wrong, I do not find this offensive to the eyes. I know perhaps to some folks this is pushing it, and I mightn't have picked that particular tie, most likely a solid, but I do like that tie itself. However I quite like that SC and think it was a safe bet to pair with a blue shirt. In hindsight, perhaps a barrel cuff shirt would work nicer than a french cuff in this outfit. 

 

I have a few SC with very similar patterns and I guess I am seeing what I like, but again, unless I am totally wrong, I do not see this as repulsive, I've seen much worse in my area from those who supposedly work in men's stores, keep in mind I am in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and it isn't exactly the Pitti capital of Canada.

I like his outfit, although I would have gone with a more sedate tie with a jacket like that.

 

Also, it's probably just my monitor, but his pants look like navy corduroy to me. Not that versatile a pant colour to me.

Size 7 (UK) is not loose on me at all, and fits quite nicely.

 

Would a size 8 (UK) be too loose?

 

(I don't have the time to go and try them on for myself at the moment.)


What brand are you looking at? What last are they on? Chelsea boots are a pull-on style which means they cannot be adjusted for fit unlike lace-ups.

 

I'm talking from experience, I have a pair of (Chinese made) chelsas myself that stretched out too much.

I wouldn't do it.

Bespoke Blue-Gray (100x Beaver) Fedora in 110 Grams from Worth and Worth. I designed the proportions.
OTR Midnight Blue Belvest 6x2 Double Breasted Suit, which has a slight iridescence sheen.
This Worth & Worth Fedora is by far my favorite hat I have ever had.

Thanks for your input. Yes the leg opening is narrow but I'm very skinny so I think it looks OK on me. I just wasn't sure about length as I've seen folks wear chinos a little higher to show sock. I'm still learning style so not sure if I should lengthen it a bit. Plan on wearing them business casual.

They were some Charles Tyrwhitt brown suede Chelsea boots, though in the end I decided against it, since a pair of black leather ones suddenly came into stock that were size 7 (Yay).

 

Thank you for your input on this though, I was skeptical about it too.

I've had a really hard time getting shoes that fit when I found 'deals'. In fact, it almost always backfired. I'm super skeptical about buying shoes without trying them on unless I know the last. I'll only do it now if returns will be relatively painless.

I've been following Andrew Yamato's multi part series on making a bespoke jacket.  It's been a great watch so far, getting to see a craftsman at work.  So I've been particularly interested in the layers of canvas/haircloth/padding, but I was wondering, what sort of layers are included in the back of the jacket if any at all?  Simpler interlining?
